Like the butcher the baker
The candlestick maker

from Run-D.M.C. – Peter Piper Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Remix of “Rub-a-dub,” the English nursery rhyme:

Rub-a-dub-dub,
Three men in a tub,
And who do you think they were?
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick-maker,
They all sailed out to sea,
‘Twas enough to make a man stare.
